Combining powerful performance, flexible ergonomics and easy maintenance, the new POWERstick PROTM delivers the ultimate solution for complete cleaning
Singapore – 7 June 2018 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced the availability of its all-new cordless vacuum cleaner, the POWERstick PROTM, in Singapore. Boasting powerful suction power, the new POWERstick PROTM is the ultimate cleaning companion for consumers, resolving the cleaning challenges they experience as they vacuum their homes.
"At Samsung, we are committed to introducing innovations that can simplify and resolve everyday challenges consumers face in their lives at home," said Joan Ng, Head of Digital Appliances, Samsung Electronics Singapore. "With the POWERstick PROTM, we are excited to bring to consumers an ultimate cleaning solution that can provide more help and efficiency for their cleaning chores, towards improving the quality of their lives."
Ergonomic design for ease of use
The POWERstick PROTM takes users’ cleaning experience to the next level by maximising aesthetic appeal and providing higher convenience for them. Its patented ergonomic Flex Handle folds up to 50° with a simple click of a button, allowing users to reach under low furniture and vacuum with ease. Lightweight and easy to use, the ergonomics of the POWERstick PROTM’s Flex Handle have also been cleverly aligned for more comfortable use, minimising strain on wrists, muscles and back.
Convenient power on function
With the POWERstick PROTM, users can enjoy continuous, powerful cleaning without having to hold down the power button throughout. They would simply need to press the power button once to switch the POWERstick PROTM on in Normal Mode and again to switch it off. In addition, users can also press and hold the vacuum cleaner’s Turbo Mode button for more power-packed cleaning.
Lasting power with removable battery
The POWERstick PROTM also boasts a powerful battery life, running on a battery pack that offers up to 40 minutes of battery life on a single charge1. The battery pack can also be quickly swapped for a replacement2 when needed, extending cleaning time to a total of 80 minutes1. Users can also be assured that there will be no significant decrease in the POWERstick PROTM’s battery power, as the battery pack is designed to retain 80 percent of its original capacity for up to 500 full charge and discharge cycles3.
EZClean technology for effortless cleaning
Equipped with strong hygienic features, the POWERstick PROTM is hassle-free in maintenance and effortless to clean, further amplifying user convenience. Users can empty its EZClean Dustbin with one quick pull of the lever, and dispose of its contents with minimal effort. The entire dustbin structure of the cordless vacuum cleaner can be easily detached and washed with water. The EZClean Brush4 is also detachable from the main unit and uses friction to dislodge dust and even hair tangles in the process, and users need not worry about getting their hands dirty.
Hygienic HEPA filtration for cleaner air
The POWERstick PROTM also boasts Hygienic HEPA Filtration to ensure that up to 99.9 percent5 of the dust collected stays in the canister, ensuring cleaner air. Its advanced filtration system received the highest level of certification from SLG, an independent testing institute, as well as from the British Allergy Foundation, for its ability to trap fine dust and other harmful particles such as household mites, pollen, and mold spores.
Strong suction power for powerful performance
Powered by Samsung’s Digital Inverter Motor, the POWERstick PROTM is built for high performance. As one of the leads in the industry, the cordless vacuum cleaner is packed with strong suction power of up to 150W6, providing users with thorough cleaning efficiency on all floor types. The POWERstick PROTM is also equipped with the Turbo Action Brush, which provides exceptional versatility in efficiently cleaning dust up from various floor types. The rotating brush bar drives bristles deep into the carpet, enabling it to powerfully pick up pet hairs and dust.
